AT&T to bring out subsidized HP Mini 110

November 20, 2009, By Thomas Antony

It seems carriers are doing everything they can nowadays to boost their data plan sales. The latest trend is to offer subsidized netbooks having 3G connectivity. Verizon recently announced the addition of the HP Mini 110 netbook to their ranks. Now its AT&T who is adding the same device to their own line of subsidized netbooks.

AT&T HP Mini 110

The AT&T Mini 110 will be available at $199 after mail in rebates starting November 22nd. The netbook has a 10.1” LED backlit screen with an anti-glare finish, and runs on an Intel Atom CPU supported by 1GB of RAM. The storage is in the form of a 160GB HDD and the whole machines weighs around 2.57 pounds. The netbook will come preloaded with Windows 7.

Of course, if you get something subsidized , it means you have to pay for it in the long term. When you get the HP Mini 110 from AT&T, you will also have to sign up for an AT&T DataConnect plan of at least $35 per month which gives a measly 200MB or data or a $60 /mo. plan that gives 5GB of data. While Verizon has recently taken up the hobby of making fun of AT&T’s rather spotty 3G coverage, you can always opt for this if their network is better in your area than Verizon’s.
